Camp Isidore Alterman

For Rising K–8th Graders

Campers get back to nature as they enjoy endless activities like bumper boats, outdoor cooking, ropes course, canoeing, fishing, sports, arts and crafts, free swim, STEAM, drama, dance, Krav Maga, and more. We offer this camp in both one-week and three-week options. In the three-week option, your camper will get to know and enjoy the same groupmates and counselors for three consecutive camp weeks.

For Rising Pre-K

A great introduction to CIA! This program, which is half indoors and half outdoors, is exclusively for rising Pre-K campers who are BOTH potty trained and will be 4 years old by September 1, 2022. In addition to all the fun-filled CIA activities, campers will participate in daily group activities as they make new lifelong friends! Please Note: Campers will need to bring their own lunch that is nut-free. We offer this camp in three-week sessions, where your camper will get to know and enjoy the same groupmates and counselors for three consecutive camp weeks.

Unplug for the Summer

Camp Isidore Alterman is the magic of summer and pure joy of time spent outdoors with best friends. CIA campers are always encouraged to socialize! Our Kehillah (community) time is another great way for them to do just that! Twice a week, campers will select fun camp activities to engage in with their groupmates, strengthening their sense of community and enhancing their social skills without even knowing it! Each Friday will be filled with ruach (spirit) as campers will enjoy Shabbat celebrations, group songs, skits, cheers, and silly competitions. In these special moments, CIA is filled with campers making lifelong bonds and feeling a true sense of community.

Please Note: Campers will be grouped by grade level and groups will be co-ed.

Our New Treehouse

We can’t wait for our campers to explore our new Treehouse, nestled in the tree line leading to the back woods. Campers will have an incredible view of Lake RB from the Treehouse, which will look out over the water and the surrounding canopy of trees. In addition to the view, this exciting new space will be home to a variety of our CIA activities, including everything from yoga to drama.

Shuk Marketplace

shukOur Shuk was the highlight of every week at Camp Isidore Alterman last summer, and for Summer 2022, we are thrilled to expand this impactful program to include all campers. Modeled after an Israeli marketplace, the Shuk is run by campers in our Chaverim Program for teens with special needs.

Each week, campers exchange shekels (coins) for goodies like toys, fresh fruit, granola bars, animal crackers, fruit juices, and more. Shopping helps strengthen decision-making and social skills for campers.

For our Chaverim campers, the Shuk fosters independence, helps improve communication skills, increases pride, offers responsibility, and gives them the chance to chat with fellow campers.

Shekels will be given to campers when they are at the Shuk. Gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free items are available.
